DIY test for real Diamonds.

1. Diamonds have an affinity for grease. Touch the diamond to grease and it will stick. You can actually feel it being pulled to sticking.

Try it on “butter”, then try a different gemstone and you will see and feel the difference.

2. Another test is the scratch test. A diamond will scratch, but nothing will scratch a diamond.

Info gleaned from the Diamond exhibition at the Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto. ON. Canada
